A nice morning out with children. I went with another friend and about 5 children between 5-7 years old. They had fun, hence we did too.
It's not the CuChi Tunnel in Vietnam, where you get to explore quite a lot of the tunnels, close to its original conditions. Here, the tunnels have been remodelled. Think smooth walls with evenly built arches and high enough "ceiling" that do not require any crouching. Many of the original parts of the tunnels were closed to visitors. The one thing that attracted me was the exit of the tunnel - from a donkey's trough. if you are going, make sure that you take this exit (up a ladder within a nook in the tunnel). Don't take the paved staircase. You cannot re-enter the museum once you have exited it … you'd need to get to the starting point to collect a new set of tickets (if permitted). So … if you make your way there, make sure that you explore every nook and corner within the tunnel.
A good time to visit is in summer - you can avoid the summer heat, as it's cool in the tunnels. Entrance to the museum is free. You'd need to call in advance (60461906) to make bookings. To collect your tickets, the adults need to bring along passports. No identification needed for children.
If you have children, need a place for them to burn some energy - go for it. Else, skip it.
